Why doesn't my boyfriend text me or call me first?

alright so me and my boyfriend have been seeing each other for almost 2 years but official for 1 year and 4 months, I know he obviously really likes me because he tells me so but he rarely texts me first and never calls me unless I ask him to! 99% of the time I'm the one texting him first (and I don't text him often because I don't want to be clingy and I like giving him his space), and most of the time he responds to me right away but recently he's been taking a long time (half an hour-an hour at least) or won't even bother replying! I have no clue why, like I've asked him casually why he didn't respond and he rarely has a good answer, like he'll say "oh sorry I forgot" or "oh I don't know I was busy", like I know he isn't that busy..should I stop texting him for a while? or should I ask him again? I don't want to come off as clingy because I'm not, but its bugging me so much! please help guys :( ps. I'm in grade 11 and he's in grade 12, thank you :)

  • Some people are just not phone happy

    others are getting too many calls

    many are too busy to add phone "business" onto their day

    often people want a real life of joy instead of technical buttons & problems

    email is a preferred choice in my life

    Since this is not working out, suggest you create a regular face-face meeting time, e.g. lunch, after school, church?

    • i talked to him and you're right, he said he just doesn't really like texting people unless he needs to, thanks!
